Department of Defense Regional Sea Level (DRSL) Database

Engineering firms can use this database to integrate future sea level change information for DoD facilities at coastal locations.

The Department of Defense's Environmental Reserch Programs offer a publicly available version of the DoD Regional Sea Level (DRSL) database. The database provides regionalized sea level scenarios for three future time horizons (2035, 2065, and 2100) for 1,774 DoD sites worldwide.

Public access to the database allows for the integration of future sea level change information by contracted third parties, such as engineering firms, in their efforts to provide installation and facilities planning and design services for coastal locations. Use of DRSL information is now incorporated into DoD’s installation master planning criteria and civil engineering design criteria for coastal locations.
